CODE CHIC | September 2015

REINVENT YOUR WINNING WARDROBE Want to turn your fall wardrobe into something altogether amazing? Well, I’m here to help. Why not start with a rockin', tough girl leather jacket? Maybe pick a long, flowing cardigan sweater to pair with your skinny jeans and show your boyish charm? Let a piece of statement jewelry top off your look. Just make sure you mix things up, layer all you want, and then watch how easily this season’s little extras reinvent your wardrobe.

Your secret code chic combination is as easy as 1,2,3 and 4. Start with the building blocks to a winning wardrobe. 1. crisp, white blouse 2. cuffed jeans 3. ankle boot 4. sensual wine lip color

Show your unmistakable sense of style and street chic by adding the key silhouettes from your local boutiques. Up your cool factor by revealing your ankles. Pick a pixie pant or, better yet, cuff what ya got! Simply rolling your jeans two times multiplies your fashion sense, heightens your look and elongates your leg. This is a great way to look taller and thinner without the help of your doctor or personal trainer.

Celeb star fashion was once easily obtained by adding the fashion scarf, but this season calls for a statement necklace for that VIP look. The soft silhouette takes a back seat to bold, chunky, glitzy savoir faire everywhere.

Play with proportions. Skinny pants call for billowing tops and one key piece is the boyfriend cardigan. It’s effortlessly chic and gives you a casual, cool vibe.

There’s one, absolute, foolproof fashion must have - cheetah print something. Cheetah is the new neutral and is the go-to add on accessory to most any outfit. It stands alone as an accent piece in a purse, scarf, or shoe. Tiny addition = major impact!

My favorite way to modernize your look is to pick a new lip color. Let’s face it, it’s your face and smile that most notice first, so why not start with the best first impression? This season loosens the reigns on color and invites you to be bold. I’ve been working professionally with make up since I was a teen, as a career woman, and now mother of four. The best lipstick I’ve found is by MAC. The price point is friendly. The quality and lasting power are top notch. Pick up “Plumful”. It is a sheer, deep color with a shine. It’s a great way to add color and gloss in one simple stroke.
